French (English is also widely spoken)
Big cities such as Paris have a metro but most locations have cheap and accessible public transport, such as trains and buses. Taxis are easy to find or call – available taxis are often indicated by a blue or white light.
The French treat Christmas, Easter and New Year as serious holidays, as well as VE Day (8th May), Bastille Day (14th July), Armistice Day (11th November) and various saints days (e.g. All Saints' Day on 1st November).
Good Time to Go
Late May - Early October
good to know
If you're flexible with your Wedding date, late Spring (April/May) & early Autumn (Oct), just outside of High Season can be slightly cheaper when booking a venue. You will find late June & September dates book up quickly - these are the preferred months to celebrate a wedding in France.
What Couples Say
“A sumptuous building, decorated with great taste, in a huge and splendid park. A true haven of paradise for a special event and a moment out of time. The manager and all his team of suppliers (caterer, decorator, florist) are very friendly, flexible and available. Thank you!”
